But Percy Sykes, 86, founder of Sydney's Randwick Equine Center, said there was "much more chance of him dying of travel sickness or natural causes."
This latter assessment is consistent with the conclusion of most Phar Lap biographers that exhaustion played a key role in his demise.They point to his arduous campaign in Australia, during which he won 37 of 51 races -- some after as little as two days' rest -- while carrying up to 150 pounds.His 18-day sea voyage to San Francisco, his 1,200-mile roundtrip by truck between Atherton and Tijuana, plus his unorthodox training schedule, made him especially vulnerable to acute intestinal distress were he to ingest moldy feed or grass heavy with dew.
